The Tijuana asteroid (aka TJ) is a small colony built within a bio-dome.
The land of Tijuana is arid and desert-like, but, it also has grassland regions.
- “TJ? That place is for small fries.”

Homages and References Edit
- The asteroid colony of Tijuana is named after the present-day city in Mexico's Baja California, thus the Mexican cultural elements depicted in this session (such as the sombrero Spike wears). However, the asteroid also seems to be very culturally diverse, with many street signs in English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Arabic and Hindi in addition to Spanish.
- Zona Norte , mentioned by Laughing Bull as a section of the colony, is actually a red light district in present-day Tijuana, Mexico.
